Sightings for February 19th & 20

Friday February 20th
Bald Eagle (Pygargue à tête blanche) just outside Chute St. Phillipe on Route 311, at around 10:15 a.m. this past Friday, Feb 20.Interestingly, it was among a group of ravens and a totally unexpected sighting. I'm guessing they were eating road kill or they were helping themselves to the eagle's kill. Unfortunately I was a passenger in a vehicle and was unable to stop - Terri Huff

Thursday February 19th

This morning there was a young female Snowy Owl (Harfang des neiges) on a utility pole at the western end of Chemin Sainte-Julie where it meets Montee Sainte-Marie. So at least one bird is still hanging around and there are probably others to be found if you have the time to look.
Some of the Horned Larks of the area have also taken up their spring stations and can now be found in scattered singles and pairs.
All the best - Lance
